NBC 33 reporter Emily Turner was rushed to the emergency room Friday afternoon after a pitbull bit her in the wrist.

Turner was following up on a Thursday night story involving a police officer who was forced to shoot and kill a pitbull after it bit another cop and a jogger.

Turner talked with East Baton Rouge Animal Control and pitbull owners about the breed.

While emily was out shooting the story she met up with a family who said their pitbull was nice. The dog who, at first, was OK with her petting him--ended up biting her. It was all caught on tape.
